9 Mistakes That Will Screw Up Your Blog

After months or even years of thinking about it, you finally decided to start your own blog. You sat down at your desk, maybe planned for a few hours, gathered your thoughts, and punched the damn keys.

Feeling a bit nervous, a bit excited (you weren’t sure what you were feeling) you eagerly waited for stuff to happen. After all, it’s all about writing and clicking on that blueish little Publish button, is it not?

Well… the feedback you receive is the kind that makes 95% of bloggers quit. Soul-crushing silence. That’s enough to break even the toughest warriors.

What happened? Where did you go wrong? Where are all the readers?

Mistakes. That’s what happened. I know, because I’ve been there. I made my fair share of mistakes. Some of them I even fixed. Now I am working on making new ones.

But let’s just focus on the ones that can, should, and must be fixed.

In this day and age, anyone can start a blog. But without readers, it’s not a blog. 

I know, I know. Some of you are itching to hit that comment box with something like, “I write for myself, I do not care if I get readers or not.

If you were only writing for yourself you’d be doing it in a journal. You write in a public blog, on the Internet, because you want to be read. Admit it. It’s going to work out so much better for you in the long run.

You might even consider this as the first mistake: not admitting that you want readers.

Yes, getting readers is complicated. And yes, it’s hard. And yes, most of you will get frustrated and quit. Some of you will persevere, while others will want to figure out what’s wrong and how they can improve.

1. You’re all me, me, me

Talking about what happened to you. What you did yesterday. Or the day before that. Telling cute stories as if this were some sort of high school reunion.

You could do that. It doesn’t mean anyone will read it though.

Even though people do love stories, even though the human element is what connects almost anything to everything else, it’s not that simple.

It’s difficult to pull it off.

Why?

Because we vastly overestimate how interested people are when it comes to our lives. Hint: they’re not. In the real world, or in this virtual world, most mimic interest out of politeness.

Yes, you have a story. I get it. But we all do.

But think of it this way: if husbands rarely listen to their wives complaining about a crap day at work (I’m so going to get in trouble for this) then what makes you think some strangers living thousands of miles away would?

Storytelling is one of the most fascinating things you can do. It connects people on such a level that they almost become one. They mirror each other, even their hearts begin to sync. But it’s one hell of a skill, and it takes years and years to master.

How can you get away with it?

What we love more than anything are stories that teach us something. Not only that, but we love the underdog winning. That’s the only story worth mentioning.

How did you overcome the most difficult moments in your life? What did you learn from them? How did those experiences shape you?

A rags to riches story is interesting because most people can identify with the rag, and can dream about the riches. The rich part is what makes it so interesting, in fact. It’s the fact that it makes people think that they, too, can do it.

But telling people what you had for lunch yesterday or that you hurt your toe by stepping on some legos…

2. You obsess about everything (but the content)

You focus your time and energy on SEO. Keywords, backlinks, and all that jazz. You buy all sorts of tools, read all the resources you can find…

I believe SEO to be mostly a waste of time. Google’s ranking algorithms are not difficult to predict, but impossible. And they change. And any so-called SEO expert if he were being honest would tell you the same thing.

Next, you obsess about the way your blog looks. The design of your blog is important enough for you to spend money on a custom theme. You take the utmost care of what goes where. You just want it to look stunning, make people fall in love.

Does it matter?

Not at all. Most of the time, as long as they can somehow find their way around you blog, your readers don’t give a damn about your custom designed theme.

3. You do not network

I wrote about it here and here.

Building connections with fellow human beings is essential to the success of your blog. It’s probably the second most important thing you can do, behind providing great content.

What I mean by this?

Reply to comments. That’s a great way to start. Focus on creating true connections with those who read your blog. Find other bloggers. Read their stuff. Comment on their stuff. Ask them if they’d like to be interviewed by you, if they’d like you to guest blog for them…

It’s not magic, and it takes a lot of time and patience, but it does help your blog. A lot.

4. You are hoping to “go viral”

This is a big misconception, one I have been guilty of in the past. Even though you are not seeing any results, then you must persevere and keep going and one day it will happen that this one post you wrote will go viral and turn you into an Internet sensation.

Look, I’m all about perseverance. And even I am guilty of being too perseverant, and forgetting about the other aspect: changing one’s strategy.

It’s mostly about the incremental. You need to grow. Otherwise, it’s all just wishful thinking, and it won’t help you reach the audience you deserve.

5. You are obsessed with stats

It’s not all about stats. Traffic. Numbers. This isn’t Accounting 101.

Stop checking those damn stats every minute of every day. It’s a complete waste of time.

6. You are not consistent

Yes, consistency is key to building a great blog. People need to know what to expect, when to expect it.

No one cares when you write an apology for not posting for six months. As a matter of fact, few will even remember who you are.

7. You already quit in your mind

This one of the most common mistakes. That’s why people tell themselves they’re only blogging as a means to save their souls from damnation. Or that they’re not popular because they’re not lucky. They have such a particular niche that there are only six other people in the world who can understand them. And five of them don’t have Internet access.

Okay, I get it. When you have 200 followers and you get 20 view every time you post something, it’s easy to get discouraged. To lose hope. But writing whatever comes to mind and not giving a damn is not going to help you increase your audience. It’s not.

Granted, popular blogs tend to become popular fast. I grew mine from 0 to 20,000 followers in little over seven months. But… there’s a but, yes… you must not take into consideration your current situation, but rather the possibility for growth.

What I mean by that is that you need to keep your feet on the ground and your eyes on the stars. Work hard on becoming a better blogger, and don’t get sidetracked by the lack of results.

Results always, always follow personal development. Or, in this case, blogging development.

You can always become better.

Thank you for reading today’s pep talk! Now on to the next mistake.

8. You post too often

Guilty as charged. But, I have a pretty good excuse. I have been doing this for so long that people have come to understand this (somehow). What I mean by this is that I have a lot of repeat readers. People who actually read every single post, which makes it okay to post this often.

As a beginner though, it’s not sustainable, and unless you provide great content, absolutely fantastic content, odds are you’re going to piss people off a lot more often than making them appreciate your time and effort.

9. You do not spend enough time writing the best content possible

Your primary focus should be content. The better it is, the faster you’ll grow your blog. It shouldn’t, however, be your only focus.

This is what makes blogging so tricky. Because it’s quite a paradox. Yes, you need to provide value, to over-deliver, to give people what they want. But it’s also important to promote, to network, to learn, to expand…

And you have to make people care. That’s what makes the difference between boring and interesting. It’s not the information, but how it’s presented.

So, ask yourself… do people care about your blog? What have you done to make them care?

So, what should you do?

The answer is kind of simple. You figure out what people want to read. What they’d love to read from YOU. That’s the idea.

I always think of blogging as a man trying to seduce a woman, so to speak. And he’s talking and talking, and bragging, and you know, explaining stuff, and how much he can bench press and how much money he makes, and she’s constantly looking away, looking down, doing all sort of things to keep her distracted.

Why is that? Why do you think something like that happens?

Because he wasn’t paying attention to her. He wasn’t talking about what she wanted to be talking about.

Blogs usually fail not because their content is bad or they didn’t add enough backlinks or because it’s all a scam and it’s all about luck and no one cares or understands what they’re all about.

That guy would be having the time of his life talking about how much he can bench press and how much money he makes if only he talked about it with the right people. The kind of people who care about those sort of things.

Women love to talk about art, romance, social dynamics, they want to hear interesting stories, made to laugh.

Getting sidetracked there a bit.

Anyway. Blogs fail because their authors never stop to think what it is that their readers truly want to read about. Because the truth is that if you write about the stuff that matters to a lot of people, then your blog will grow. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing it “wrong” by most experts’ standards.

Listen to your readers. Ask them what is it that they’d like to read more about.

And if you don’t have any readers yet, don’t wait for them to come to you. Go after them. Network. But do it with a bit of grace and diplomacy.


I’d like to know what are some of the mistakes you’ve made and how you fixed them.

Also, I do want to know about some of the issues you’re having, and maybe I can help you fix them.

Lastly, if there’s any topic you’d like me to write about, do share that with me in the comments section below.

  1. I started my blog a few months ago and I don’t even know what mistakes I am making(probably a million). I love to write but sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the technical aspects of blogging like SEO, promotion etc.
    I have realized that there is a lot more to blogging than just writing. Can you give me any tips/shortcuts so I can spend most of my time on the reason why I began to blog (my urge to write)?

    1. Well, you don’t need tips to do just that. The only shortcut is to focus most of your time and energy on writing the best posts you can.

      Also, read a lot of other blogs. Notice what they do. Study.

      And don’t worry too much about SEO and all that. Keywords and all that stuff.

    2. Just write what you love and don’t worry about all that other shit. I’ve had my artcalling blog for 11 years and little by little gained followers. I never network for the sake of networking. SLowly you attract people who care about what you care about. I have maybe 7 loyal followers whom I exchange ideas with and that is fine. What would I do with more?
      I write about what matters to me, I love writing, I love sharing my ideas and hearing from others. I stopped looking at my stats a long time ago. You just need patience. I also don’t ‘do’ social media, and I don’t even know what SEO is!
      good luck. Listen to your heart. Sarah from artcalling.wordpress.com

      1. These are encouraging words for a technophobe like me.
        The only reason I started my blog was because I wanted to write.
        I find myself spending a lot of time on the SEO stuff. I have also invested in upgrading my WordPress account/plan.

        I would gladly ignore all this and concentrate only on my writing. The reason I want to promote my blog is that I want to monetise it. If I can monetize it I might be able to give up my professional career and become a full time writer.

        A bit of a conundrum.

        Any suggestions , anyone?

  2. This makes me pause for thought. Started blogging more regular last year and blog growing. Networking really helps, but I am still finding my feet ‘re growing my audience. Having a larger audience creates more conversation. I read many other posts but do not find them any more informative than the next blogger…excepting one has say 200 followers and the other 10,000. The latter will get more likes because the audience is larger, more comments, more traffic. But the two posts are as good as identicle. So one isn’t working the market. What and I include myself, should we do to raise the readership. I do not believe it’s just down to quality writing.

    1. Good point Judi.

      I find it quite sad to be the only person to “like” a really interesting post,
      often by a blogger with an even smaller audience than me (Yes: they do exist!).

      Then I see someone very popular can get hundreds of likes for a picture of their favourite pizza…

      There are plenty of good posts going almost unread.

      1. I agree. It does take an intelligent strategy to be reserved when liking things and to commit to commenting rather than optimising your like levels per day. But I read a few excellent blogs and have no idea why they have few likes. I assume it is due to no budget to buy followers to increase likes or they have a small and sadly lazy set of friends and family who fail to support. If it comes down to what most things do..money and contacts then yes and I count myself here…getting followers will be quite tough. But I think long term with persistence our blogs will grow organically. Koko..keep on keeping on.

Too much rambling.

  7. I’m not sure if it was this blog or another one of yours but your mentioned categories. I started my blog back in 2013 and completely lost the plot and didn’t start again until this year. My direction has changed some since I first started back when… so I have added categories but I can’t seem to work out how to delete categories. How does one do that?

    Once I work through what I want to blog and how everything works on the site maybe I will get into some sort of routine.

    Anyway, I found some of your blogs quite helpful.

  8. Excellent, refreshing article. As a book author as well, I, too, have been intrigued at what and how to write in such a saturated environment of “bloggers” and “authors” and twitter accounts, sometimes I have thought, “why bother?” when there are a trillion others who blog? I have bothered only because apparently, people kept reading the pages of the blog every day for over a year when I didn’t even visit or post to my blog (and I was like REALLY?!). Apparently, there was a reason to keep going… your tips and ideas are excellent. Thank you!!

  10. Hey there!
    Enjoyed your article.
    I’m all “info-ed out” with trying to do everything right with all the blogging and tech side of stuff.
    Gets dizzying, right?
    To be honest, I think my issue has been clarifying what I truly have in my heart to write about and why.
    I know , when I answer these clearly…I can get develop a readership. I’ve done that much before.
    But then, the next step, engagement,-so many read and read, but say nothing, do nothing… and I figure, it just didn’t hit their heart enough, but do I let that alter what felt right to be doing?
    That’s where the ‘why’ has to be clear.
    Or is it just the delivery? But they kept reading… according to my rare trips to insights lol
    And monetizing…? Well, Never even put anything serious in place to try…maybe I was too scared it would be as silent as the comments bar 🙂
    I will answer my two key questions and go with that, tidy up the scattergun content and then get focussed and consistent!
    Thanks again!

  11. Great post & very helpful. Thanx!
    I laughed out loud when you said it’s easy to get discouraged when you only have “200 followers and you get 20 views” – I wish! I’ve been at this for … I don’t remember how long, but well over a year(s) and might finally hit 100 followers by end of summer. I persevere like no one’s business (I’m that way in everything – I don’t tip my king – if someone is going to kill me, they’ll have to work at it.)
    Mistakes – I’ve made a few (shut up, Frank…)
    I started out with an irregular schedule. Then I tried to have a solid schedule, but tried to build up to 7 days-per-week, with each day of the week having its own theme, which was a mistake just from the standpoint of thinking up topics. I cut back to 3 – Meandering Monday (yes, I meander about something, which is hit and miss on popularity), Writing Wednesday (my most popular day, when I post my goal status and discuss something I’m doing as a writer – personal methods, observations, pointers that might connect with other writers’ needs and experience), and Fxxxxx Fridays (NO, that is NOT an obscenity – just a word that starts with “F” for alliteration. Fridays are pretty much meandering again, but a little more focused. I tend toward a political observation, although I try to not make it always political.)
    I suspect it’s a mistake to discuss politics (but I’m passionate about it), as well as not having a consistent theme on both Fridays and Mondays.) From my own observations, I might attract more readers/followers if I made it about writing all the time, but I don’t think I could keep the content fresh for long.
    I used to obsess about followers and readers, now I only check my numbers every week or so. I think you’re right – Content is King, especially content readers can CONNECT to, and COMMENTS on my own blog posts elude me (I get very few, and it’s more robo-spam and people promoting their own lnks than anything related to what I wrote.) Someday…

  14. Christian – Thank you for an interesting and informative post. I have been blogging for over five years, and fortunately, I don’t have to create material. I’m sharing my family’s stories through letters, photos and memorabilia. It helps that most of the story takes place during WWII.

    Checking my stats – and obsessing over them – is a bad practice I followed but one that was hard to break. I have used those numbers to validate my worth or the worth of my content. I finally realized that in the whole social media world, those who would be interested in my stories would be a very small percentage. I have finally accepted the fact that I won’t ever have 20,000 followers. Those that I have enjoy the content and continue to read my posts. Am I rationalizing my lack of “success” ? Maybe. But I also think it is important to put this information out there. There isn’t a lot of information about this “Slice of Life” and I feel blessed to have so much information from a very personal perspective – from those who actually lived through it and recorded their thoughts in letters, like a journal.

    I post every day – I think consistency is important. It’s hard to keep track of who is posting on what days. Is this a bad thing? I don’t know but I try to keep my posts very short so they don’t take too much time to read. I hope that helps.Could you elaborate on your thoughts about how often to post?

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on mistakes – this has helped me think about what I do and why I do it.

    Commenting on your blog is the first step to increase my networking. I always reply to comments but I don’t go out and find other posts to comment on. Thank you for that excellent advice.

    Now that I have the blog, of course, I love seeing that people read my reviews and I wish they would comment more often and engage in discussion on the books involved.
    Anyhow, thanks for a great article about blogging, for a total blogging virgin, who never thought about the nitty gritty at all…

  17. Okay, alright, I get it Christian. Your article is excellent but I still feel like I’m not getting something here.

    You said seduce the reader, but isn’t seduction a personal thing because what turns me on may not turn you on (speaking metaphorically of course). So shouldn’t I write about what floats my boat then…But you said people don’t really care about that, like my stories about what happened to me yesterday or last week or whenever. So where do I find the middle ground there, Christian? How do I stay in my turn on and still be able to seduce my reader?

    You also said that some blog too often and others not enough…What is too often? How many times is not enough? How many times would be considered consistent but not overkill?

    Your article really was an excellent read. It provided food for thought but with those thoughts came a whole barrage of questions. I just want some solid advice on how to grow as a Blogger. Thanks Christian.

  18. Good article. I have done many of the things you suggest and more. I enter new photo and writing challenges to attract different people. I write about travel a lot because that seems to generate more traffic, and besides, it’s my passion. When someone likes my blog, I go on theirs and read something I haven’t read before and (hopefully) “like” it or write a comment. But I sometimes can’t keep up with these.

    I actually did update my theme and I really like the one I have now, so I don’t expect to change. My writing is pretty good, as are my photos. My blog is just as good as many others I’ve seen.

    Even though I’ve noticed different bloggers liking my posts, I usually average around 20 likes, which can be discouraging. I have over 200 followers. I’m trying not to think about this because I don’t want to obsess.

    Any suggestions for me?

    1. Once a week is perfect. The idea is to be consistent. Choose a day, maybe even the same hour, and stick to it.

      Also, yes, the thing is that at one article per week, you should provide something more than just 350 words that form a mini-rant or a short story… so you can easily write posts that are 1-2 thousand words long.

      1. Thank you! Yes, I did a bit of digging and apparently 1600 words (7 minutes reads) are generally the most successful. Once a week should give me enough time to come up with the research for that length of article.

    1. It depends on the length and type of posts… short, 300-500 posts, a quote at the beginning, something like that… you could get away with posting every day, maybe even twice a day…

      But longer articles, in the 1 to 2K words category… one every other day, maybe even less than that.

      It’s also a lot about experimenting in order to figure out what your readers want and what kind of schedule benefits your style and niche.

      1. Oh, also… it depends on how many followers you have… what do I mean by this… you need to space your posts enough apart that people comment on them…

        The thing is that folks usually comment on the most recent post, and so it depends on how many followers you have until you receive a few comments, just enough to ensure you have some social proof and other folks will want to also comment, even though it’s no longer the most recent post.

        So that’s also something to keep in mind.

    1. Hi Jessica,

      Welcome to the world of blogging.

      Five tips? Well… I’ll do my best not to bother you, so here’s five really short ones:

      1. Have fun. Like really have fun.
      2. Lower your expectations. It’s going to take longer to build an audience, to get really good at writing blog posts, and all that.
      3. Connect with other bloggers/your readers. Forget about stats and traffic and all that. Behind every single username here there’s a person.
      4. Take your time. When writing blog posts, when editing them, when brainstorming ideas, selecting images. Take your time.
      5. Be brave. Take a stand. Write from the heart, write about the things that matter to you, the things that you feel deeply about.

  24. Thank you so much for your advice. I started my blog in the year 2014. When I first started is because I was searching for a place to express my feeling. Did not bother with the content at all. As I am a person with no directions, no passion, no interest, I continue using my blog to complaint about my feeling. Then in 2015, I start to find a little more interest in blogging so I blog some about myself, some about photography, some about cultural and some about an event I attended (still without any direction on what I want). In 2016, still, the same lost girl posting about everything without directions. In the year 2017, I start to change my posting. No more just about myself, but more on spreading positive energy story/events. Then this year 2018 I realise everything happens because of my mindset. I always have negative thinking and before I start doing it, I already tell myself that I might not make it or I will fail. I found my passion now which is to spread more positive energy around and post more about positive information for myself and also for everybody who has a very negative mindset.

  25. I started a blog to somehow compliment my podcast but now seem to be engrossed in the writing. Lots to think about but loving the blank canvas each day.

    I’m also blown away by the shear number of people across the globe who are blogging – I had no idea.

    I’m intrigued to get some advice on how people search for something of interest to them?

    Look through categories?

    Punch in specific words into a search?

    Or maybe something else?

    Cristian, your posts have become somewhat of a 101, an encyclopaedia and a bible to me so far in this maiden voyage. Many thanks for thrashing those keys and sharing!

    1. Hi Chris,

      Thank you for the compliments. I am happy to have you as a reader.

      Now.. how do people find something to read? Social media. Someone they know shares a link. Google Search. Searching by tags in the WordPress Reader. Most of them just go click on people who comment on certain blogs to see what their blogs are about. The truth of the matter is that folks rarely know what they want to read until they find it.

  26. Good advice. I think the networking is very important. Besides it being important for my blog I have found lots of intesting bloggers out there who write about things or in styles that I do not.
